The first corner of the game saw the visitors take the lead with a goal from Sam O’Brian but Brayton hit back within minutes when a Rob Guest cross was volleyed home by Joshua Knowles.

Rovers were 3-0 up after only 20 minutes with a brace from Chris Dixon and a John Patrick strike.

Jake Moyse retrieved a goal for Severus with a penalty, but Rovers hit back when Dixon struck his third goal and Lee Bunce scored to make it 5-1 at the break.
